International Day for Tolerance- 16th November

Building tolerance and trust in diverse communities is not done overnight,
but takes time and commitment.
Building tolerance requires access to education. We need to place greater emphasis on educating children about tolerance, human rights and fundamental freedoms. But we should not forget that education does not end in school, that adults - firstly as individuals capable of committing acts of intolerance, but more importantly in their capacity as parents, law-makers and law-enforcement officials - also need to be considered a priority target of the educational efforts.
